  • We saw monkeys! Lots of monkeys. A great view of the volcano, a good mix of flat and hilly hiking, a cool water bird with a bright yellow bill, but come for the monkeys!  more »
  • This is an incredible park and set of trails in the shadow of the Arenal volcano. The trails were not too technical, but a beautiful ride through the surrounding area. A great loop on bike with a beer and some tacos at the lookout after. Everyone there was very helpful and welcoming, with fantastic views of Lake Arenal and the volcano.
  • The entrance to this place is very nice, and the view from the restaurant is amazing. I enjoyed the hiking and the view, but I have 2 complaints: 1) For a hike like this in extreme heat on lava rocks, they should warn you to be prepared and that there is no water along the trails. This is a bit more that just a casual hike like you would encounter at Tenorio Volcano National Park. 2) $17 per person seems a little too expensive for allowing us to hike through the park...especially considering that there are no bathrooms or water stations along the way.
